Personalized Letter Opener - Fiddlehead Spiral

| /

These whimsical fiddlehead letter openers are hand forged in Maine and finished in a combination of linseed oil, beeswax, and turpentine, which leaves a smooth dark finish on the piece.

These are small letter openers as they measure about 8 inches long. Since each letter opener is handmade, they may vary in size-- however this means your piece is guaranteed to be one-of-a-kind.

They can be personalized with a set of initials, a name, or a short message up to 10 letters. If you select the personalized option, please enter the personalization info in the notes section when checking out.

Forging is the process of heating metal to increase its malleability and then working it in various ways, often with a hammer and anvil. When steel is heated and worked a dark material called scale forms on the surface of the metal. Once the forging is completed, most of the scale is removed through wire brushing the surface. This gives a nice silvery finish, which is sealed with a wax coating.
